Needle Felt a Blue Tit (Midday on Fridays and 3pm on Saturdays)

X

Description

Join me for an online needle felting workshop where you can make your own little needle felted blue tit. You will be sent a kit containing all the materials you need ahead of time.

Classes are taught via zoom, allowing you to have a crafty couple of hours from the comfort of your own home 😊. Zoom is easy to use. I will set up a meeting and will send you a link ahead of time. Feel free to log in a few minutes before the workshop starts so you can get settled in and I can answer any of your queries.

This online session lasts approximately two hours allowing plenty of time to interact and ask questions.

There will be a maximum of ten people per class and there will be a camera focused on my desk to allow me to demonstrate each stage of the work and any particular techniques.

Due to sharp needles, this workshop is not recommended for young children, and children over 12 should be supervised.

I have run workshops in the past on different subject matters including bumblebees, toadstools and cacti. If there is anything in particular that you fancy felting, or if you’re interested in a specific date, please feel free to contact me.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

A kit, containing all the materials you need, will be sent to you ahead of time. This will include:
* A foam mat
* Five or more colours of wool
* Two barbed needles
* A piece of linen with a template;
* An embroidery hoop to frame your piece.

What you will need

The workshop is run via Zoom, so please make sure you have a suitable device and a strong internet connection.

A pair of scissors and some glue may also come in handy at the end.

A thoroughly enjoyable workshop. Very relaxed. The kit for the workshop had plenty of materials. Gwen was friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful. I amazed myself how well the little blue tit turned out and was delighted to learn a new skill. I would highly recommend this course. I hope to do another course with Gwen soon.

What a fabulous way to spend a couple of hours- in the (zoom) company of a lovely group of people and a friendly, knowledgeable and supportive tutor. I shall be signing up to any future courses run by Gwen and recommending them to any willing to listen!

This is the second online workshop I’ve done with Gwen & I enjoyed it just a much as the first. A great way to spend a couple of hours developing a new skill with good company. Kit contains all you need to produce a felted picture just like the one you see on the advert with lots of wool left over to make another one. Highly recommended.

Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:

Beverly, it was lovely seeing you again and I’m so pleased to hear that you enjoyed it. Thank you so much for your lovely review!

Best of wishes,

Gwen :)

A very well paced and organised ZOOM workshop. The teaching was excellent and it was great to have a finished blue tit at the end of the course. The kit was nicely packaged and presented and with the addition of your own backing fabric there is enough wool to make a flock of blue tits!
Looking forward to taking part in the Toadstool workshop later on this month.

Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:

Hello Liz. Thank you so much for your lovely review! It was such a pleasure meeting you and I look forward to seeing you again in a couple of weeks time :). Best wishes, Gwen

Gwen's online workshop was a delight. The kit came beautifully packaged, with high quality supplies. Her instruction was so easy to understand and the way she handled the class with an aerial camera along with her own face in the gallery so we could see her while she was instructing, along with the project demonstration was simply perfect. Gwen gave instructions and demonstrated very clearly and was open to questions throughout the workshop. She didn't rush anyone and was attentive by checking in on each of the participants. I highly recommend Gwen's workshops. It was a lovely way to spend a few hours, and I am so pleased with the result of my project.

Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:

Amy, thank you so much for such a lovely review. It was such a pleasure meeting you (and your two lovely little dogs ☺️). I am so pleased that you enjoyed it!

I really enjoyed the felting workshop and was amazed with the beautiful result that I got, a blue tit that is fit for framing and will take pride of place on my wall. Gwen was really lovely and made everyone feel at home even though it was over Zoom. The kit arrived well packaged and with high quality materials, everything you needed with lots to spare. During the workshop Gwen shared her knowledge in a way that put everyone at ease and there were lots of hints and tips as she demonstrated each stage, she is very talented and knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble. I would wholeheartedly recommend her workshops.

Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:

It was really lovely seeing you again Audrey. Thank you so much for your kind review, it’s hugely appreciated ☺️X
